Question Dos Error

When i try to copy the files from the CD (i bought yesterday) to my hardisk, a error comes out saying "Invalid ms-dos function".
I tried the CD on the others computers and it worked.
I try to copy the files at dos via XP startup disk. The initial drive at the dos is <A>, when i try to change it to my CDrom drive which is <E>, it says "invalid specification drive".
The situation is same when i change the drive into my hardisk drive , <C> and <D>.
I'm running XP and NTFS for my hardisk.

well you need NTFS drivers on the bootdisk to be able to access the hdd so google it.
